Join StreetsPAC for two upcoming Brooklyn events with endorsees

Carlos Menchaca, Council District 38 (Red Hook, Sunset Park, Windsor Terrace
*Saturday 6/29, 11am - 1pm Sunset Park (5th Ave & 44th St entrance).

Menchaca, who spent several years working in the Brooklyn Borough President’s office, has most recently served as an aide to Council Speaker Christine Quinn. A regular bicycle commuter, Menchaca looks forward to working to extend the Brooklyn Greenway from Red Hook to Sunset Park, and to launching a community-led initiative to transform the space beneath the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway along Brooklyn’s Third Avenue.

Antonio Reynoso, Council District 34 (Williamsburg & Bushwick, Brooklyn; Ridgewood, Queens)
*Monday 7/1, 7:30am - 9am (Marcy Ave stop on J/M/Z- Corner of Havemeyer St & Broadway)

Reynoso, who’s been Chief of Staff to Councilmember Diana Reyna for the past four years, sees truck-route calming and enforcement as well as expanding the bike lane network for Bushwick and Ridgewood as huge opportunities to improve life in his district. Keeping trucks on redesigned, designated routes will improve street safety for local residents, while an expanded bike lane network would link residents to transit and local jobs. Reynoso has commuted by bicycle since selling his car to campaign full-time, a change that has transformed the way he looks at and experiences city streets.
